Sports Destination Management Magazine

November/December 2014
November/December 2014

Where are some of the most exciting developments in our industry occurring? At the intersection of sports and technology. The November/December issue of Sports Destination Management has all the details. For example, what can mobile apps do for your event and how do you go about implementing them? Our article can help you get started.

Technology is also extending its reach into the merchandising and promotional industry – sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. This issue can help you stay on top of the trends. And don’t forget the excellent article with tips on negotiating hotel contracts, aimed at helping first-time planners walk away from the table feeling like a winner.

Sports event planning now goes beyond the diamond, the court and the field, and should always include a template for action if your event should have to shift suddenly into crisis mode. How can you develop this plan and what resources are available to you? You’ll find out in this issue.

Our November/December issue also has the inside track on the evolution and rise of fitness competitions. These competitions are muscling their way out of membership gyms and evolving into multi-day events held at larger venues capable of hosting elite athletes, spectators, media and more.

With safety concerns on the rise, it’s no wonder that touch football is gaining ground. Our Executive Insights article has information on adult and children’s programming in this sector of the sport.

This issue also has the outstanding content you’ve come to expect on sports, their growth and what planners need to know. You’ll learn about equestrian sports and rodeo, volleyball and tennis facilities, plus a collection at some of the best sports venues across the United States.
